3 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing an AC Company (Part 2 of 3)
The 2nd mistake of 3 mistakes to avoid when choosing an AC company (Part 2 of 3) is selecting the lowest bidder. It may seem attractive and simply a “no-brainer” to go with the lowest bid. However, this is not always the case. As challenging as it may be, it is important to take a step back and take a closer look. This pause will help keep you on the right track to selecting the proper AC company.
3 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing an AC Company (Part 2 of 3) #2: Is choosing the lowest bidder the best idea?
Remember when your mother said, “You get what you pay for?” This typically is the case with any contractor who may not be operating ethically. Take heed and beware of any new air conditioning estimate that is substantially lower than the others. Here are a few questions to investigate when you receive a low bid. Keep in mind, an honest company will more than welcome questions.
- Is the company licensed and insured?
- Will they take shortcuts on quality?
- How stable is this company….will they be here after the sale?
- Are they offering me options and not just replacing the unit with the same model?
- Is the representative a salesperson or an educated AC technician?
- Is there permit documentation?
Peace of mind is key.
For over 20 years, Sunset Air has been doing business in SW Florida surviving various volatile markets, while remaining constant as an HVAC leader. In addition, we are certified by the state of Florida, licensed, insured, and provide Worker’s compensation for additional protection. Keep in mind, without a license, there is no guarantee your job will be done properly, or any recourse if done improperly. Furthermore, be sure the company obtains a permit. Hence, we take care of the permitting process and display it properly on-site.
We believe in providing you excellent service. Therefore, a knowledgeable AC technician – not a salesperson – will greet you and explain everything to you in detail. In fact, our technicians will take time to answer all your questions, perform a thorough analysis of your AC unit, and offer you several AC equipment options that are suitable for your home.
TIP – Pause a moment and listen to your gut. Take time to ask questions and review any concerns with an expert technician.
